prompt pick up, great cruise and knowledgeable guide. Also, great value.Would highly recommend. It is longer though than half day due to hotel pick ups.
Time changed and no collection

The tour was good. However, we booked the 10am tour but were told the day before this had to be 11am (this then meant we were extremely rushed as we had a flight that evening, hence us booking the 10am and not 11am tour) also they said they couldn't collect us from our hotel due to traffic so we had to get a taxi to another location at our expense even though this was booked with hotel collection (again informed that we needed to get ourselves to another location the day before).
Excellent cruise tour
, Jul 2019
Nicely set-up tour, punctual and informative staff (especially the lady guide at the end of the tour), excellent cruise, interesting bus tour, good lunch break at Pierre Lotti and thank you for arranging to avoid the queues at cable car. Reasonable price. Only negative point: there is no drop-off at the end.

Staff davvero gentile e disponibile. Do' 3 stelle perchè non sono venuti a prenderci in hotel e hanno ritardato circa mezz'ora dall'ora stabilita. Navetta in pessime condizioni. Tour sul Bosforo carino ma non eccezionale.
